At least Sailfish accepts .apk files.
Is not technically Android, but it can be used as Android.
Good old Nokia OS.
MeeGo was so nice back then.
According to the Wikipedia, Sailfish is:
-Strong multitasking (one of the most important advantage of the OS and declared to be the best one at market)
-Strong privacy and personalization features
Base on this two reason I have positive mindsets with this move.
Can't stop laughing at some of the comments. Are some people really so deluded?
This thing can easily blow other OS away (iOS, Android, Windows, Tizen, etc.) given how much Sony does with software optimization of an OS that they don't even have the full control of.
Ranking from the best software manufacturers:
1 - Sony
2 - Apple
3 - Google
4 - Windows
5 - Samsung
Sail fish now becomes the world's best OS thanks to sony and it's fans. Lmfao!
Nah Sony can't even get their act together for their camera menus. I don't have confidence in any of their softwares.
Hi-tech, 04 Jul 2017no malwares? thats it? once salifish grows(IF it grows) then sure there will be malwares, spyw... moreIf sailfish is limited to some users of xperias only, it'll always have a small install base and therefore attract less attention from hackers.
Like hows theres less malware on MacOS than windows.
Luxor, 04 Jul 2017And you see where Nokia standing now? Android. Nokia schoud have there own os meego insteed of Android, Usa wants to cotorol the world thats why Microsoft took Nokia.
Good news for everyone who hates android but also doesn't want to give a fortune to apple
Claudiu.Lucian, 04 Jul 2017Why would you use Sailfish OS instead of Android OS???You ask why?
because sailfish os is mutch better than Android and it is Meego Sailfish os developed by Nokia,
Great! Now I am thinking about getting Xperia instead of Samsung A3!
Android keeps reminding me of Windows - things going on under the hood and no easy way to figure out what it is... then there is a point when things are failing and freezing and the only way is to reinstall... Simply Android is super user friendly... like windows. And that alienates me. I need common FOSS apps in the system. I don't like ad-sponsored TOPs and sh#t like that.
Surficial, 04 Jul 2017How much malware/exploits do you think there are for sailfish OS? Probably no malware, no kno... moreno malwares? thats it? once salifish grows(IF it grows) then sure there will be malwares, spywares blah blah wares.... its just that nobody is interested to exploit sailfish right now.
This can't get here soon enough! I would actually say why would anyone use android or ios instead of sailfish... unless you have total disregard for your privacy... etc.
